I have a compaq presari, i took the ram out to replace it with bigger ram that wouldnt fit then I replaced the old and now it wont switch back on


Answers :

This can be caused by several different factors. I'm worried because I'm not sure if you tried to install too much memory, or memory that was physically too big for the computer.\015\012\015\012When you are working inside the computer, ESD (electro static discharge) is a real and constant threat. All things that move build up electrons, and when they are released, to balance the load (so to speak) we see a spark.\015\012\015\012This spark can be a lot of fun for kids in the winter in dry or cold climates, but for the inside of computers, it can be deadly.\015\012\015\012The amount of ESD necessary to damage the inside of a computer must be multiplied by 30 before it can be felt by a human fingertip.\015\012\015\012That's not much juice, and it sounds to me like this might be the bad guy you are facing.\015\012\015\012It may also be, however, that when you replaced your old memory, it didn't seat quite right. Try taking it out and carefully putting it back in again.\015\012\015\012Oh, and as long as you're in there, check all the connections and make sure nothing was bumped or accidentally unplugged when you changed the memory.\015\012\015\012good luck\015\012tony
Remove the ram module and replace it, making sure it seats properly in the slot. It sounds to me the ram is not fully seated. Make sure the notches line up, the ram can only go in one way.
